Intravitreal Avastin (bevacizumab, IVB) is more effective for myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV) than photodynamic therapy (PDT), according to a new study. Extreme myopia may result in degenerative changes of the retina. These degenerative changes may lead to complications such as retinal detachment or macular degeneration. Degenerative...

The choroid in highly myopic eyes is very thin and undergoes further thinning with increasing age and degree of myopia, according to a new study. High myopia is associated with excessive and progressive elongation of the globe, resulting in a variety of fundus changes that lead to visual impairment, including lacquer cracks in the Bruch...

A study of fundus autofluorescence (FAF) characteristics of choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) secondary to pathological myopia (PM) has a specific FAF pattern. This study was an open-label, prospective, interventional case series of 42 patients affected by subfoveal CNV in PM underwent PDT with a 24-month follow-up. Each patient underwent an...

Jun 16, 2009
A small case series of patients undergoing intravitreal Lucentis (ranibizumab) therapy for choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to pathologic myopia (PM) reports vision improvement of 3 of more lines in over one-third of patients and no cases of moderate or severe vision loss from baseline after 12 months of follow-up. Earlier research...

A new study finds that combined anti-VEGF and photodynamic therapy (PDT) is effective for juxtafoveal and extrafoveal choroidal neovascularization (CNV) due to age-related macular degeneration (AMD), ocular histoplasmosis syndrome (OHS), and degenerative myopia. Laser photocoagulation is the standard therapy for CNV that occurs outside the...

Myopic macular degeneration
Jun 15, 2009
A new study finds that intravitreal Lucentis (ranibizumab) is effective for the primary treatment of myopic choroidal neovascularization (mCNV). Extreme myopia may result in degenerative changes of the retina. These degenerative changes may lead to complications such as retinal detachment or macular degeneration. Degenerative changes affecting...

Lacquer cracks in pathologic myopia
May 21, 2009
A new study finds that intravitreal injection of Avastin (bevacizumab) in eyes with mCNV can improve visual acuity (VA) and macular sensitivity as measured by microperimetry for at least 6 months. However, some patients showed scotoma enlargement after treatment was initiated. Myopic choroidal neovascularization (mCNV) is one of the most...

Lacquer cracks in pathologic myopia
Mar 14, 2009
A small prospective study of intravitreal Avastin (bevacizumab) for subfoveal and juxtafoveal myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV) finds that it is a effective and safe therapeutic procedure. Long-term visual outcome of myopic CNV seems to be extremely poor according to the reported series based on its natural history, suggesting that...
